Texas energy deregulation
Deregulation in Texas began in 2002 and ended the monopoly utility companies had over their service areas. Utilities stopped selling electricity to consumers and instead focused on delivery and maintenance (of power lines, equipment, etc.). Independent providers, meanwhile, began to sell electricity to consumers.
Today there are many providers, or REPs, available to choose from, which has been beneficial for consumers across the state. Consider the latest statistics:
- Texas residential electricity rates are 10 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas commercial electricity rates are nearly 23 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas industrial electricity rates are nearly 16 percent lower than the national average.
- Texas generates (by far) the most electricity of any state from wind.
- Texas generates the fifth-highest amount of electricity from solar energy.
